Predicting Infratentorial Craniotomy Extubation

The rate of early extubation after infratentorial craniotomy appears to vary widely from one medical center to another. Also, studies designed to identify predictors of early extubation after infratentorial craniotomy have mainly focused on technical neurosurgical aspects, leaving several more general predictors (difficult airway, respiratory status, duration and time of surgery, etc) unstudied. Our primary goal is to identify predictors of early extubation after elective infratentorial craniotomy. The first part of the project is a survey about practices in different medical centers.

Headaches in Subarachnoid Hemorrhage - How do you treat them?

The goal of this survey is to characterize practice patterns and the degree of variability in treating headache in subarachnoid hemorrhage. Severe headache affects more than 90% of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage. In spite of the pervasiveness of this clinical problem, no guidelines on the treatment of headache in this patient population have been established. Further, many specialties may provide care for these patients, with their training and clinical expertise informing their practice, introducing an additional source of variability. We seek to characterize practice patterns among clinicians in a variety of locations and specialties.
Target Audience: All NCS members
Duration: 10 minutes
